Design and Display
Huawei Matebook X offers a sleek and stylish design. It parades a gorgeous all-aluminium body with clean lines. This one sure looks ready to entice some fans away from Apple.
Huawei Matebook X is just about 12.5 millimetres in thickness and 2.30 pounds (1.05 kg) in weight. The ultraportable is slimmer and lighter than comparable MacBook Pro. Huawei Matebook X comes with a backlit chiclet keyboard that offers 1mm key travel – not the best, but better than that of the 12-inch MacBook. The touchpad is spacious enough at 4.1 x 2.4 inches.
The 13-inch, non-touch display boasts an amazing 2K resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels and slim bezels. Expect awesome viewing on this one. The laptop flogs several top Windows-based rivals, including the Dell XPS 13 and Asus ZenBook 3, out of the water in terms of peak brightness at roughly 375 nits.
Power and Performance
Rocking a fan-less design, the Huawei Matebook X comes with latest-generation Intel processors – up to Core i7. You can get models with up to 8GB RAM and 512GB SSD.
With these configurations, the Huawei Matebook X comfortably outdoes the Intel Core M-powered 12-inch MacBook. Integrated Intel HD Graphics 620 sees to graphics performance. Huawei claims you can expect this beauty to last around 10 hours on a charge.
Additional Specs and Features
You may not be wrong to expect the Huawei Matebook X to deliver superb sound. It is reportedly the first laptop to come with the Dolby Atmos sound system. This is different from the Atmos technology you may have seen in other devices that tune headphone audio. The system here optimizes sound coming from the inbuilt speakers.
Buyers get two USB Type-C ports on this Windows 10 laptop for charging and data transfer. You can increase connectivity options by adding the MateDock 2, which adds USB (Type-C and Type-A), HDMI and VGA ports. Huawei Matebook X also has a 1MP front-facing camera for video communication.
